Playing chess with Kubrick, a fond recollection of meeting with the director for an interview. Related but unrelated, an interview with Magnus Carlsen, the current world chess champion. It’s hard to explain, but it’s a fun interview to read, he comes across as relatively normal and down-to-earth. My introduction to chess was having my Dad destroy me in short order, kind of like a checkmate in four moves, but it might have been worse than that, thanks Dad.
A recreation of the Shining set to promote an upcoming season of Kubrick films for Channel 4. It borders on creepy.
